Colchester Rescue serves as an American Heart Association (AHA) Training Center for the instruction of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and basic recognition of medical emergencies.
We offer courses depending on your needs or the needs of your organization. Course completion cards are valid for 2 years.
As all of our Instructors are volunteers, we generally require at least 3 weeks advance notice to set up a course. We are not able to do 1-on-1 or last minute classes.
